There should be a small button or a small hole where you can push the tip of a pen, when you find the reset, hold it in for 60 seconds
reset is usually underneath or on the sides


kind regards

Forgotten password for wifi network


Which operating system ??
Your wireless Internet password is the encrypted security pass phrase that was set up when you installed your wireless router.

Your router allows you to access the Internet.
If you have access to more than one wireless network, you may need to remember multiple passwords.

If you happen to forget one password, you have two options: reset your password or locate the current password.

Windows 7 allows you to view the security characters of all your wireless network passwords.
Click the "Wi-Fi" network icon located on the Window's taskbar.


Right-click the name of your network's "SSID" name and select "Properties" from the drop-down menu.


Click the "Security Tab." The network security key is now visible but unreadable.


Click the "Show Characters" check box and this will reveal your wireless password.

Reset My WiFi Password

Wireless networking is a common feature in homes and offices.
Wireless routers provide access to a single Internet source, and wireless passwords ensure that only select users can access the network.

If a password is forgotten or lost, the password can be recovered or reset by accessing the router's Web-based settings menu.

Most wireless routers also have a reset button, which is capable of returning the router to its default settings which includes resetting the password.

Connect to your Wi-Fi or attach your computer directly to the router with an Ethernet cable.
Open your Web browser.

Enter the default address of your router.
The default address is listed in your user manual or on the product website.

Linksys and 3Com routers typically use "192.168.1.1" while Netgear routers use "192.168.0.1."
Enter your username and password.

Many routers use "admin" for the username and password by default.
Locate the wireless security settings. Disable the wireless security.

Reset to Factory Defaults

Locate the reset button on your router.
Typically the reset button is a small indented hole on the back of the device.

Insert a long thin object such as a paperclip and hold down the reset button for 30 seconds to revert the router to its factory default settings.

Open your Web browser.
Enter the default address of your router.

The default address is listed in your user manual or on the product website.
Linksys and 3Com routers typically use "192.168.1.1" while Netgear routers use "192.168.0.1."

Enter your username and password.
Many routers use "admin" for the username and password by default.

Locate the wireless security settings and add security as necessary.

Go to your router and turn it off for 15 seconds. Then get a toothpick and push in the reset button in when you plug it back in. Do not do this until the router is working again and fully lit. Then push the reset button.
Now go to where it says connections you should have your access name click connect and put in the password you know will connect you. If this will not connect then it is a software issue and not the hardware you will have to delete and start over reconfiguring a new wireless connection. It is not the product it is the configuration that is the issue.
Something between you Internet Provider and the password may need to be reset then you will have to go to this link. 192.168.1.1 this will take you to the router page. Look for wireless connection then remove the password and create a new one. Save on page and go. Now go and re-log in again using the new password. Try this out see what happens.

I need to secure my home wirless network


1) Secure your wireless router or access point administration interface
Almost all routers and access points have an administrator password that's needed to log into the device and modify any configuration settings. Most devices use a weak default password like "password" or the manufacturer's name, and some don't have a default password at all. As soon as you set up a new WLAN router or access point, your first step should be to change the default password to something else. You may not use this password very often, so be sure to write it down in a safe place so you can refer to it if needed. Without it, the only way to access the router or access point may be to reset it to factory default settings which will wipe away any configuration changes you've made.

2) Don't broadcast your SSID
Most WLAN access points and routers automatically (and continually) broadcast the network's name, or SSID (Service Set IDentifier). This makes setting up wireless clients extremely convenient since you can locate a WLAN without having to know what it's called, but it will also make your WLAN visible to any wireless systems within range of it. Turning off SSID broadcast for your network makes it invisible to your neighbors and passers-by (though it will still be detectible by WLAN "sniffers").

3)Enable WPA encryption instead of WEP
802.11's WEP (Wired Equivalency Privacy) encryption has well-known weaknesses that make it relatively easy for a determined user with the right equipment to crack the encryption and access the wireless network. A better way to protect your WLAN is with WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access). WPA provides much better protection and is also easier to use, since your password characters aren't limited to 0-9 and A-F as they are with WEP. WPA support is built into Windows XP (with the latest Service Pack) and virtually all modern wireless hardware and operating systems. A more recent version, WPA2, is found in newer hardware and provides even stronger encryption, but you'll probably need to download an XP patch in order to use it.

4) Reduce your WL-AN transmitter power
You won't find this feature on all wireless routers and access points, but some allow you lower the power of your WL-AN transmitter and thus reduce the range of the signal. Although it's usually impossible to fine-tune a signal so precisely that it won't leak outside your home or business, with some trial-and-error you can often limit how far outside your premises the signal reaches, minimizing the opportunity for outsiders to access your WL-AN.

5) Disable remote administration

Most WL AN routers have the ability to be remotely administered via the Internet. Ideally, you should use this feature only if it lets you define a specific IP address or limited range of addresses that will be able to access the router. Otherwise, almost anyone anywhere could potentially find and access your router. As a rule, unless you absolutely need this capability, it's best to keep remote administration turned off

Thanks
Have great day

I have to give the credit to my daughter, who has fixed the problem so that all is ok.

She simply saved all the data on my file, then deleted it completely from the laptop. She then created a new User Account for me, after which the Security Suite asked me to enrol as if I was a new user.

At this stage, all is working perfectly, but I'm having a hell of a time going through & deleting all the double info, but it's working so I suppose it's worth it.

Hope this helps somone else.

How do I secure my Belkin ADSL2 Modem with Wireless G Plus MIMO router so the neighbours stop using our internet


you would need to access the router via a browser. the address for accessing is normal on the underside of the unit. you will need to use the standard user and password name (normally admin admin) or written in the manual/underside. then open the wireless security. select WPA and write a password of suitable length thats easily rememberable. apply the option.

on your pc now open the wireless access point list. (using xp here) on the left there is a setting with a spanner and red. click that. it will list previously accessed wireless networks (might be on a different tab but you have opened the right box). the best way is to delete the access point that is yours then reconnect, or you can change the settings, clicking WPA and typing in the pass. i prefer to delete as it asks for the password twice, making sure its right in both cases. (the passwords are normally long so its easy to catch the wrong key when typing it in, using the other way i get annoyed if i've mistyped cos i have to open it all up again!!)

Greetings my name is Mark and I will be glad to assist you. First unplug the router power and let it stand for thirty seconds. Second locate a small hole in the rear of the router it will not be marked. Third insert a small paperclip in the hole, you will feel a click when you do this, hold the clip in place for thirty seconds, at the same time you are holding the clip in place re-connect the power to the router and count to thirty seconds. Remove the clip and allow the router to re-boot for two minutes. It will reset to factory default and you will be able to access the router through a hardwired computer connection. Open your internet explorer and in the address bar type "192.168.1.100" your user name is andmi and your password is admin this should default your router and you can make the necessary security changes. Take care,
Be mucho blessed,
Mark

I have a laptop inspiron and cannot remove the lock function when i log on


First of all i need to know the specific model of the inspiron laptop in question.
Secondly,is the lock or its better to say password on the motherboard or on the user account.
If its the user account, then you can type the word "Administrator" in the user field if it opens up for u then u can access that account through C:\Documents and Settings/ user account and access the data. After u can even delete that account.
Or I reccommend to use Hillens Boot Cd and use the password tools.
thnx
